Daniel Craig’s James Bond was the introduction to the war era’s intelligence agent being brought to the 21st century, which was a new battlefield where wars were fought behind the scenes without the knowledge of the common folk.

Nad after his departure from the role, fans were a little disheartened, but at the same time, they were excited to look forward to the next iteration of Agent 007. Many rumors have been making circles that tell stories of actors like Tom Hardy, Dan Stevens, and Charlie Cox becoming the next face of the franchise. But among all of them, former Superman star Henry Cavill seems like the most obvious choice to the majority, although Craig does not care who the next Bond will be.

During the interview, the Knives Out star said:


“I don’t really pay attention, it’s just a lot of noise. I mean I don’t go on the internet, I don’t have a social media account, so, you know, it’s what it is”

Although the former James Bond star might care about who will become the next super spy, he does want to enjoy the next 007 films that will come out in the future.
